Born James Newell Osterberg in a trailer park in Michigan, Iggy Pop grew up playing the drums, eventually moving to Chicago to play drums in the 1960s blues scene. Quickly realizing that his true calling was in rock n' roll, Pop formed a new band where he was frontman called The Psychedelic Stooges, which experimented with bizarre instrumentation like paint cans, vacuums and oil drums - subsequently creating what would later be called early punk. Changing his name to Iggy Pop and his band to the Stooges, the group released several albums, all considered rock classics now, but recieved little acclaim at the time. Due to the band members' growing drug addictions and riotous shows that often led to Pop leaving the stage covered in blood, the group's record label dropped them, and the band remained defunct until David Bowie hunted them down and convinced Pop to release another album. Pop and Bowie would go on to collaborate for years to come. Though Iggy Pop never truly gained commercial success, he is considered iconic in the punk rock scene and notable for influencing the start-up of 70's UK punk and 90's US grunge.
